No matter what you send them it’s not done to their satisfaction or not enough. My paperwork didn’t have enough information and I was out of the guidelines for missing work because of my broken ribs.
My doctor sends me back to work for light duty, with restrictions on bending, twisting, and reaching above my head, my paperwork is faxed to Sedgewick, and later that afternoon I get a phone call from Lisa notifying me that their doctor talked to my doctor and my restrictions have been lifted.
i was at at green mountain coffee roasters and was injured feb of 2011 as of yet i have recieved nothing. i have hired an attorney because being decent and honest with Sedwick proved to be a costly mistake. more people need to find out about the way things are handled. The only thing is, if I dont have this surgery I will lose my hand. I’m really disappointed that my employer would hire such a crappy company! They realized husband is disabled at this time and shouldn’t be at work but Sedgwick don’t care, they are insisting he return to work with out doctor’s release, even though the functionality test says not able to return to work ’till after treatment, which he just started. I was without income for four months and collected unemployment the last two.Sedgwick claims to have more than 6,400 employees in more than 150 offices throughout the US and Canada.Sedgwick prides themselves on providing cost effective claims management, which usually means they use special techniques to help employers or insurance companies reduce the amount of financial exposure due to paying disability benefits.Either my doctor is spineless or Sedgewick can preform miracles.
If I am injured further at work because of my “lifted restrictions” who will be responsible?
